  • Special Summons Dark Magician from your hand plus another DARK Spellcaster from your deck for no cost.
  • Negates opponent’s Spell/Trap card effect.


  • Trap cards can be slow.


Dark Magical Circle

Dark Magic Circle is able to add Magician Navigation to your hand. You can later activate Magician Navigation to Special Summon Dark Magician and trigger Dark Magic Circle’s removal effect.

Dark Magician

Dark Magician on his own is really not that impressive being a Normal monster with below average stats. What makes him good is the amount of powerful support that is used alongside him.

Magician’s Navigation, for example, is powerful because it can bring out 2 high-leveled monsters for no cost. Listed below are some other powerful support you can use with Dark Magician.


Here is some Dark Magician supports that can search out Magician’s Navigation.

Sorcerer of Dark Magic

Magician’s Navigation lets you Special Summon 2 high-leveled Spellcaster monsters which is the cost you need to summon Sorcerer of Dark Magic.

DARK Spellcaster

Aside from Dark Magician here are some notable monsters you can Special Summon from the deck with Magician’s Navigation.

No more 3 navigation for you unless you want to dump that broken Rod.
People are really complaining that this card MAY come to the game? Are you people stupid? There are almost TCG type of meta decks in the game and decks so broken you hate your life for playing against them.

And this ONE CARD for a low tier deck is a threat to you? Are you really that stupid?

Any broken card deserves a ban, regardless of the deck it's part of. You are NOT supposed to come back after having all your three circles destroyed and are NOT supposed to draw your goddamn third BM and STILL have one more illusion AND a goddamn third Timaeus. This crap needs to end.

You do understand that the situation described is rare, right?

Only the third Timaeus is rare. Me vs this deck is every single time they successfully activate at least 2 navigations, and the third at least half of the time too. The circles being destroyed is almost all the time since I always use my effects to destroy it before anything else.

It only works for the effect that lets you Special Summon a Level 7 or lower DARK Spellcaster-Type monster from your Deck

Yes, but as already said, only for the second special summon.

The first special summon specifically ask for a monster named "Dark Magician", not "Toon Dark Magician".
Do you really need 3 navigation? I have all other cards including 3 circles but only 1 navigation.

Well you can just say you have 2 navigation and 1 cyrcle since having 3 rod and 3 dm requires 0 effort.

For DSOD Yugi I want the DSOD DM, for Arkana I want his DM x3, and for Yami Yugi I already have 3 of his DM.

As for 3x Circle, will 1 less really cripple the deck?

If you want tge deck to work like a clock you do need 3. If you want to be less upset in the near future, you better w8 for the next banlist.

Great, I still need Curtain & Illusion Magic, 3 Circle, 1 Navigation, and 1 Kycoo. And that's not counting my Extra Deck...
I was playing vendreads against DM and he did not seem to be able to negate my ritual spell card activation, was it just him being stupid or is there some u said ruling about this card that doesn’t let it negate spells like poly/ ritual/ etc. I don’t think he was given the prompt to use the effect because there was no delay, and also the timing of all the spells and effects being resolved indicated that I would be able to immediately ritual summon. I’ve had a few other scenarios like this as well but I can’t remember what cards I used, or if it’s just my Imagination and their misplay. And I saw a comment below that said someone couldn’t negate lunalight fusion, so I’m curious if anyone knows the answer to this. Thanks

Hm... is dark magician on the field?
Considering you didnt use battlelord and such to prevent its activation, the only thing i can think of is his condition is invalid. Or maybe he usr it on the field during the very same turn?
So this card doesn't negate Power of the gaurdian?

It negates it for a turn and sets counters to 0. Magician navigation doesn't destroy face up cards.
So played against a lunalight duelist and I used this card to do my combos. When their turn came up they activated Lunalight fusion. Someone explain to me why I cannot negate that card? But I can negate Invocation o.o
this card is definitely meta material

yes, it is.
now summoning Sorcerer of Dark Magic would be easier. this card mostly negates spell card if you already have SoDM on your field.
If it negates why didn’t it allow me to negate world legacy clash. It banish sharanui spirit-master lowered my attack and to top it off destroyed magic circle. Total exploit and needs to be nerfed hard.

That is the power of Shirainui fool.

Submit to it.

Give up on your Dark Magician cards and join the Shirainui side of the game, and victory you shall obtain.

I agree with you, although I don't use a Shirainui deck. This Dark Magician parade is just making the game more childish.

In the tournaments dark magician and elementsaber-invoker are dominating most other decks
Is this card broken? It destroyed my continues Subterror final battle trap card instead of only negate it till the end of turn as it written in description

Navigation only negate and doesn't destroy.

A non-continuous trap cards nature is once played, it will go to GY (unless the effect states otherwise.)

So, Final Battle being able to be flip back to facedown is part of its effect.

Since Navigation negates it, so it goes to the GY following normal trap rule.

This card cause a severe imbalance to the game. When banished Magician Navigation negates the activation of quick-play spell cards (Offerings to the Doomed), normal spells and counter trap cards (Blackbird Close). In short, it negates and render useless any spell or trap card.
